Hi Cahit,

A fantastic shot of this Kingfisher. I love the pose with the opened beak. Beautiful colors and details. I'm wondering what he is perched on.


Hola Cahit, has arrancado con fuerza en TK. Muchas gracias por tus amables comentarios. Tu fotografía es excelente, con un buen encuadre y colores muy logrados. La pose del ave y el gesto son imponentes.
Un abrazo: J. Ignasi

Hi Cahit

What a magnificent close-up of this amazing king-fisher!
I love to see such sharp details on the bird and also this impeccable timing!
You used the natural light very well and therefore all the colors and tones here came out wonderful and superbly saturated. Also spot-on DOF that keeps the entire bird in great focus and also blurrs the BG nicely.
Excellent composition, too!

Bravo, TFS and Happy Holidays!

PS: even if this is a rahter common subject on TN, a note would be nice at least to tell us how you managed to get this beautiful image :)

Hello Cahit, well done, very sharp picture with great colors. I think you overdid the BG. Thanks,


Güzel Yalıçapkını örneği, hoş poz, güzel tablo Cahit Bey, nötral ve homojen gri zemin biraz abartılı renkleri daha da ön plana çıkarmış. Çok kez kazınmış ve boyanmış tekne babasından tünek de resme ayrı bir güzellik katmış. Kutluyorum.

La foto e' molto definita, un vero peccato per il posatoio non proprio naturale, tuttavia se l'hai individuato, credo non sara' difficile riprenderlo ancora , il tipo e' molto territoriale.
Un cordiale saluto Piero

Bonjour Cahit,

Superbe prise,j'aime bien le bec grand ouvert et les superbes couleurs de l'oiseau. Bravo pour les détails.

Merci pour le partage.


Hallo Cahit
Being a new member to Trek Nature I am still browsing if time permits. I think at this stage my eyes are working overtime to search for anything that will grab my attention, and I’ll tell you it is quite a difficult task. There are just so many talented photographers on the site and they all have such spectacular portfolios. I found this kingfisher in your gallery and was really excited. It is a colourful bird and the detail on the plumage is good. The metallic green is really incredible. Thanks for sharing.
Kind regards

merhaba Cahit bey, sizi bu sitede de buldum.
çok başarılı bir çalışma.
tebrik ederim.

Muhteşem bir kare yakalamışsınız. Tebrikler

Bi tana daha buldum:) ne kadar tatlı esner gibi durmuş bu. Oturduğu zemin de sanki özellikle boyalı. Harika bir kompozisyon olmuş. Elinize sağlık.
